Still waiting: one cite : you stop posting.
You either cite your sources like an adult, or don't and show to all the world that you are a dishonest, spineless, lying coward who never cites his sources, then lies about their origin when backed into a corner.

I am not going to stop posting just because an immature manchild wants me to. This is like my four year-old cousin saying she will only eat her peas if she gets ice cream for dessert.

You, without doubt, have the mentality of a four year-old. That is very, very sad.

That you persist with red herrings (excuse the pun) demonstrates your complete inability to understand basic logic.

<quoted text>There is no such thing as an "umbrella" term.

Obviously: English not included in your majors.
An umbrella term is a term used to cover a broad number of functions or items that all fall under a single common category. Umbrella term is also called a hypernym. For example, cryptology is an umbrella term that encompasses cryptography and cryptanalysis, among other fields. Similarly, an umbrella organization is a central and coordinating body representing a number of smaller, separate bodies.

The closely related blanket term is a word or phrase that is used to describe multiple groups of related things. The degree of relation may vary, even have a minimal relationship, but blanket terms often trade specificity for ease-of-use; in other words, a blanket term by itself gives little detail about the things that it describes or the relationships between them, but is easy to say and remember. Blanket terms may originate as slang, and eventually become integrated into the general vocabulary.

Wrong again, manchild.

I cannot help you do not understand the difference from saying something and going to jail, and saying something and getting fired.
You are an incredibly stupid person.
So you demand that only arrested cases count? Alright then:

"The Inquisitr reports that a 22-year-old woman from California was arrested after posting a racial slur against President Obama on her Facebook account. Denise Helms, who is clearly not a supporter of the African American President, told her friends that maybe “he will get assassinated” prompting authorities to investigate her.
Denise Helms never expected her joke about Barack Obama to cause such a tantrum on behalf of the Secret Service. The 22-year-old woman made a racial comment about the newly re-elected President and hoped that maybe he “gets assassinated this term”. The post went viral within a few hours as it was shared by other Facebook users.
Helms released an interview telling reporters that she never expected to get so much attention over a comment. She later on tried to set things straight by admitting that the part related to the president’s assassination was a little bit far-fetched. The mere fact of speaking about someone’s assassination doesn’t necessarily mean you would do it, Denise explained. However, she wouldn’t be the least affected if Obama was murdered.
Denise’s employers at Cold Stone Creamery were outraged by the woman’s comment, as well. They decided to fire her and posted an official statement on their Twitter account, on Thursday, notifying the press that Helms is no longer working with them. Following an avalanche of angry messages, Cold Stone Creamery’s spokesperson declared that the company does not share the employee’s view on Barack Obama.
Denise Helms’ problems could get a lot worse in the future. According to the Associated Press, the woman is currently being investigated by the Secret Service because threatening the president is a felony. If she is found guilty she could be sent to jail.
Helms is not the only person who posted offensive messages against the United States President after the results of the election were communicated on Tuesday evening. Real estate mogul Donald Trump took to the Twitterverse to express his anger over Obama’s re-election and to invite people to make a revolution. He later on deleted his radical posts."

Sweden Is Top Democracy; Italy `Flawed,' Study Shows

Sweden is the world's most democratic state while Italy, a member of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, ranks as a ``flawed'' democracy and fails to make the top category of countries, the Economist said.

Countries are split into four regime types determined by their democratic credentials, according to a list published in the Economist's ``The World In 2007'' report. The classifications are: full democracies, flawed democracies, hybrid regimes and authoritarian regimes. The U.S., at 17th, and the U.K., at 23rd, ranked in the bottom half of the full democracies.

I see no difference other than the fact that you pasted the text as well as the link. You are telling me that you could not be bothered clicking on the links I provided?

Also:

The Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics supports research and honors teaching that develop a critical understanding of national and international politics. Its distinguished faculty members seek to instill in their students a theoretical and practical appreciation of the ideas, institutions, and history that shape political life. The Department celebrates methodological pluralism: it seeks to promote an awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of different methodologies so that students can evaluate and select the approaches most suited to exploring the research questions in which they are interested. The faculty and students approach these questions through a rich variety of topics, including democratization; liberalism and its critics; race, gender, and ethnicity; political economy; and the role of human rights international affairs.

The Department is comprised of four subfields: American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Political Theory. Although individual faculty members usually specialize in a particular area of research, empirical and theoretical interests are frequently shared across subfields.

Bolstering the Department's standing as a locus of rigorous empirical and theoretical research is its close affiliation with a number of research centers and institutions, including The Miller Center of Public Affairs, the Center for Politics, the Center for Survey Research, theCenter for South Asian Studies, the East Asia Center, The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies, Studies in Women and Gender (SWAG), the Media Studies Program, the Center for Middle-East Studies, the Department of Latin American Studies, and the Center for Russian and East European Studies (CRESS).

So you are saying that a list of degrees offered is much more convincing for evidence of degrees than a link straight to the Politics degree itself from Aberdeen?

Is that what you are honestly saying?

But, hey, look!:

Undergraduate Program
The mission of the undergraduate major in Political Science is to educate students who are interested in politics into politically literate citizens capable of understanding governments and political processes in the U.S. and abroad, as well as the interactions among governments. The undergraduate major is intended to develop students' frames of reference and their critical and analytical skills in order to help them understand the political world.

There are currently about 1,400 undergraduate Political Science majors at the University of Florida. Every year 75-100 students participate in our internship program with local, state, and federal agencies and legislative offices. In addition, UF offers a variety of study abroad programs through the International Center. Students may join Pi Sigma Alpha, a Political Science honor society which publishes a newsletter and provides undergraduates with opportunities to serve the community, attend social events, and promote political awareness around campus. Another way to participate in department life is to write for the UF International Review, a student-run quarterly journal of international affairs.

Threatening the president has potential for felony charges - did you not read that? She was being monitored by the Secret Service - did you not read that?

You keep clinging to the "arrested" angle; it matters not. The fact that we have two people now who have at the worst lost their jobs does not exactly say much about your freedom of speech being any better than ours.

Your freedom of speech, like ours, has consequences.

The only way that ours is any more "severe" than yours is because Britain is much more sensitive to racism and extremeism and does not pander to uneducated mobs of rednecks who still think America is in the Civil War.

I see how it works. You think that if you do not know about something, then it does not exist.

Umbrella term does exist, and furthermore, you are -again- playing word games to run away from the argument itself.

Face it: you think all cars are the same. You think are food is the same. You think all mammals are the same. You think all reptiles are the same. You think all nationalities are the same. You think all colours are the same.

That is your black-or-white logic in action. That is why you cannot answer any questions.
